Mourinho rules out January signings

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has ruled out the possibility of signing any new players in the January transfer window. Real were surprisingly quiet in the summer transfer window when just four players - Ricardo Carvalho, Angel di Maria, Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil - arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu following Mourinho's appointment as coach. But despite being linked with a host of star names, Mourinho doesn't expect the club to complete any January transfer business. Twelve months before his arrival, Real spent over £150millon during a record-breaking summer transfer spree which brought the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka to Madrid. "It's normal there's talk of players. Madrid is Madrid and there's always talk of players," Mourinho told the club's official website. "Mainly it's great players because if you talk of mediocre players people won't believe it. "It seems normal to me, but as coach I have to say not only what I think but what the club thinks and that is that this is the squad until the end of the season. These are the players which we have faith in. "We don't have the perfect squad, because the perfect squad doesn't exist. We have an excellent squad with players who give me a lot of confidence and I don't want any players in the winter market."
